The Border's Toll

The Border’s Toll: Reuter's, July 25, 2022

"From the highways of San Antonio, Texas, where 53 migrants died last month after being packed into a sweltering tractor-trailer, to the currents of the Rio Grande, the unrelenting heat of the desert in Arizona and the wall that former President Donald Trump touted as “just about unclimbable,” there have been more than 1,000 fatalities on the U.S.-Mexico border since U.S. President Joe Biden took office in January 2021."
